Both of our lights in our above ground salt water pool stopped working within a few days of each other. It is this exact light. When I was checking it all out I discovered water inside the sealed black box part where the cords go in. I figured the lights shorted out. What I can't figure is how water could have gotten in there in the first place. Any help?

Good day, I would recommend contacting Hayward at 908-355-7995.

What light do you have to fit in a SP 507 Hayward niche

Hi Paul, If you have a SP0507 Hayward Niche then you will use one of these Hayward DuraLite Pool Light Fixtures as a replacement light.

I was unable to locate an owners manual for this product that will provide specific instruction how to remove for winter time

A  Answered on 11/2/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

At this time we do not have a manual for this unit. We would recommend contacting the manufacturer for this.

We have a light fixture in our pool that is leaking around the fixture itself. It is an above ground doughboy pool and there is no longer an actual light in the hole. Would this work to just replace the whole thing or does it need a niche?

A  Answered on 7/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Alyssa. This Hayward Above Ground Pool Light can be used if the light is not part of the pool return system but a stand-alone light. A niche is not needed for the installation.

My above ground pool was installed in 1998. I need a new light which has a 3.5 inner diameter. Do you sell a light that will fit? Thanks.

A  Answered on 5/13/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Rita. This light can fit into a 3.5" hole, it does not have the capability to act as a pool return. The Aqualuminator Above Ground Pool Light - 98600000 can act as a pool light and return.

?     Asked on 5/2/2017 by

We purchased our above ground pool in 1998. There is a light in the pool also. Last week we noticed the water level dropping. The liner is only 2 years old. After checking, the water has a heart drip around the light fixture. Does the fixture have a seal that can be replaced, of do I have to purchase a new fixture?

A  Answered on 5/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. The Elite Gasket - SPX0565G is the seal that would need to replaced.

?     Asked on 4/27/2017 by Rita

Do you sell a replacement gasket for this light kit? I've got a leak where my light is this year. :(

A  Answered on 4/27/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Rita. The Elite Gasket - SPX0565G is the only gasket available for this unit.

can this light be used with water return to sand filter

A  Answered on 3/16/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Eugene. This light does not allow water to flow throw it, I would recommend the Aqualuminator Above Ground Pool Light - 98600000.

What is the winterization process for this light ?

A  Answered on 7/22/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, You will have to drain the pool down below the light. Remove the light from the pool wall and store inside. I was unable to locate an owners manual for this product that will provide specific instruction.

Can I install in a pool step that has a light in it and use it as a replacement if so what are the dimensions?

A  Answered on 7/28/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

As long as you have the correct dimensions this light fits in, there should be no issues installing this in a step. The light dimensions are 10 x 11 x 10 inches.

Is this a light kit with different colors? If so how many colors and do you need bulbs for all the colors ? Does this include everything ?

Hi Kathy, yes this light does come with different colored lenses and you can see the various colors in the product photos. No extra bulbs are needed for the different colors and yes this does include everything needed for installation.

I am replacing a broken Sta-Rite model 05103-0925. Would this item be a comparable unit? Thank you in advance.

A  Answered on 10/2/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Kevin, The Hayward Above Ground Pool Light & Lens Kit (SP056525A) would be compatible with the Sta-Rite SunStar Light (05103-0925)

A  Answered on 8/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Bob D.

The cutout in the wall of my pool is 3 and 1/2 inches. Will this light work? I think this light calls for a 3 and 5/8" cutout.

A  Answered on 7/10/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

As long as the hole is smaller than the 3-5/8" you will be ok, as the light comes with a wall cutting tool which will allow you to make the 3-5/8" hole needed.

?     Asked on 4/28/2008 by Guest

A  Answered on 4/28/2008 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.
